Re: Best Good Lovin'?
Certainly not the best, but I've mentioned this before and noted the historic significance. Here's a rarified Good Lovin'
performed in Lake Placid, NY. It's the closer in the last set Oct 17, 1983
. I'm still stunned. They opened with a Sugaree
whose performance sounds like it was put down in the studio.
Listen to Bobby, at 5:00 into Good Lovin'. The band goes into an interlude, and builds on it, reminiscent of Lovelight.
"I wanna tell ya all about it now.
'cause we gotta make it work some how.
I don't have to tell you what it's like these days.
Sometimes you can't see shit through the smoke and the haze.
You gotta have good lovin'."
Good Lovin' builds brilliantly from there. Listen to what Bobby says and sings next. The band is standing up for our environment and mother Earth. Sustainable life on Earth is for all of us
. They take this theme into the crescendo of Good Lovin', the closing tune for the concert. And then, they come back out and do a tasty encore with "Revolution". It appears to me they are rebelling against the early Reagan years and blowing off some steam. On the other hand, maybe Jer and The Gratefuld Dead family were/are and will always be the biggest PR-stunt in history?
